Kori Gedris

Providing Positive and Constructive Feedback Using Social Skills

RMTC-D/HH spotlights teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing (ToDHH) Kori Gedris for November 2022 as she models providing constructive and positive feedback. The theme of this spotlight was based off of the eighth high-leverage practice (HLP) from the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR) Center and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC)’s publication High-Leverage Practices in Special Education. HLP8 states, "Provide positive and constructive feedback to guide students’ learning and behavior.”

Kori Gedris graduated with her Bachelor’s in Deaf Education and Elementary Education from Flagler College and received her Master’s in Exceptional Student Education from Grand Canyon University. She worked in a separate class setting with students who had significant cognitive disabilities and implemented Access Points to the general education standards for approximately 15 years prior to becoming the itinerant teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing (ToDHH) in 2013 in Putnam County School District. Kori also serves as the district contact for the programs of Intellectual Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder, and is the Alternate Assessment Coordinator. She is currently the President-Elect for the Florida Educators of Students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing (FEDHH).
